Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

On 21st July HMCTS initiated an on line question and answer page on proposed pilot schemes to extend the working hours of magistrates` and crown courts. It seems, surprise, surprise that many points made by various contributors remain unanswered.  What an indictment of the senior management of that organisation that offers a sounding board to interested parties and then ignores the responses.
